Always busy, always plenty if places to eat and drink. Great place to watch the world go by or just reflect how quickly your CHF disappeared since you arrived in GVA. Any season this place is worth stopping by.

A little square full of locals, a nice quiet place just in the middle of the old city. Cofee is expensive there but the sinshine and views are great

Beautiful, but It has not a lot to do. It is worthy if you have time, if not, don't put it in your list.

Place Bourg de Four is a must in Geneva. Every year the Escalade celebrations take place here, in the historical heart of the city. The Palais de Justice is also right here. The square is lined with bars, restaurants and specialty shops. Have a coffee,...More
